It really is not very heavy, but can continue up to the 4th or 5th month of pregnancy in some cases. Heavy bleeding is one of the first indictions of natural abortion or miscarriage. If you are experiencing period like bleeding then it you should check with your gynaecologist immediately. In very early stages, bleeding post vaginal discharge then it could be an indication of a miscarriage that is already over.
Cramps can also take the form of dull or moderate lower back pain. If back pain is accompanied by bleeding, be sure to call your obstetrician.
Some women may experience no bleeding or other symptoms but there could be some tissue like discharge from the vagina. At times, these tissues could be the placenta and foetal tissue, which has stopped growing inside, but you were not aware of it. This usually happens along with any of the above symptoms. The tissues are discharged from the body naturally and then you will get your periods.
